Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for clicked on to the 28th episode of our beast series. Today we’re gonna be looking at another curious case. In the way that we’re looking at the sheep what’s curious about it is that it’s actually found in the core ruleset.
It’s actually found in the storm kings thunder campaign. Much like the pig in the truss them which is rather interesting. The sheep is considered to be cr0 and to be honest it’s meant is more of a background beast at least as far as i can tell.
Something to maybe have a farmer use or maybe have the party hunt for food or materials or what have you. That being said let’s take a quick look at its stats so we can kind of talk about a little bit further.
The sheep is considered to be a small beast that is unaligned as most beasts are. That being said he has 10 AC which kind of puts them towards the lower end of the AC spectrum. He does have 3 hit points whensoever which puts them above quite a bit of the other beasts, that is calculated by rolling a d6. He’s a speed of 30 feet which puts him in line with them actually most medium creatures which is very interesting.
- Type: Small Beast, Unaligned
- AC: 10
- HP: 3(1D6)
- Speed: 30ft
Taking a look at his stats you’ll notice he’s particularly dumb and i think his charisma is way too low for how cute he is. As a charisma comes in at a naught minus 3 modifier which just seems heartless to me. But whatever wizards of the coast you’re not really particularly well known for your accurate description of animals.
- STR: 12(+1)
- DEX: 10(+0)
- CON: 11(+0)
- INT: 2(-4)
- WIS: 10(+0)
- CHA: 5(-3)
Looking at his senses he’s a passive perception of 10 which puts him actually above quite a few of the other beasts. Also he has sure-footed which is the same as the goat. Essentially gives them advantage on strength and dexterity saving throws made against the effects of a knock them prone. Which is understandably pretty helpful.
That being said i think once again the best of using these in your campaign to be as background characters. Maybe you have a farmer use them or gift them to the party maybe as a reward or maybe it’s part of a quest take them to mark safely as bandits try to raid them. I think that’d be pretty cool or maybe even a rival farm or paid bandits to raid them, something like that might be kind of a fun idea.
That being said! let me know how you’d use them in your game. Be also be sure to mention any other thoughts, questions, comments or concerns down beneath in the comment section, i really do appreciate it. That being said! i hope you have a great day and as always happy researching my friends.
